The major purpose of this platform is to help developers to distribute games and help gamers to also find the games they like and purchase them. Over the years, the platform has evolved into a fully functional games database, games market place and social media platform for gamers to network.

The Origin app is available for gamers to download and install on their Mac OS or Windows operating systems.

Origin also comes with Origin Client which allows games to communicate and chat while playing. Players can join groups and chatrooms from the Original Client while still playing their games.
